Look at it like this... We have gut bacteria that lives on sugar and it communicates with our brain. When it feels threatened it will be sending all kinds of messages to the brain in the form of CRAVINGS. One of the many wonderful things about Ayurveda is becoming aware of who you truly are. Listen to the chatter in your head because OH BABY IT WILL BE THERE! What “messages” are you getting? What rationales and justifications? When you go stand in the kitchen or stare into the refrigerator, what are those little guys- that are fighting for their little bacteria lives trying to convince you to do? Laugh at them! Get an attitude! Is that the best you got??? Walk out the door- Getting outside is the best distraction!
